Bird Names
“Grow Each Other”

Last year, Georgia group Bird Names released their fifth album, Metabolism: A Salute to the Energy of the Sun, on Northern Spy. It was a completely unrefined, lo-fi shit-brew of melodic quirk and rhythmic oddbeats, garage-kraut twang and demented-pop. And it was fucking great. “Grow Each Other,” the album’s third track, just got the Vimeo treatment. As you’ll soon see, the video, directed by Francis Carr, is a perfect visual representation of Bird Names’ aesthetic: bright, pulsating, and jarring. Check out the video above, and head over to Northern Spy to pick up Metabolism, as well as new albums released last week from Donovan Quinn and the Charles Gayle Trio.
